The US-based early music ensemble Quicksilver Baroque performs a Sonata a Quattro (four parts plus continuo) by Johann Joseph Fux. 

Fux, who died 278 years ago today, is best known today for his treatise on counterpoint, the Gradus ad Parnassum, which the likes of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven all poured over to learn the compositional techniques of Rennaissance and Baroque composers. A copy of the book was also in Bach’s personal library, along with scores of the Sonatas a Quattro.

The performers are: Robert Mealy and Julie Andrijeski (violins and directors), Greg Ingles (trombone), Dominic Teresi (dulcian), Avi Stein, organ Charles Weaver, lute Video by Daniel Rumley
